TheSonnenuhr (sundial) is framed by rugged slate rocks, lending its name to the surrounding vineyards. This extremely steep site is dominated by bluish Devonian clayslate with a very stony character that provides optimal airing for the growth of the vines. South/southwestern exposure furtherreinforces the idyllic growing conditions inthese vineyards, which are watered by run off from heavily wooded mountains above.
- Wines from the Sonnenuhr are characteristically elegant, with ripe yellow fruit, stony minerality, and a long clean dry finish. Inparticular, these wines have great longevity.
